The College of Business Administration’s cheering team, the BizAd, bested other participating college cheerdance teams in this year’s All-University Cheerdance Competition last Aug. 25.
Kenneth James Morados, team captain of the CBA BizAd said that the rigid training for two months helped them regain the title.
“Words can’t explain how thankful we are for the back to back [including Ms. Silliman] win of our college,” Morados said.
Jomel Bernardo, coach of CBA BizAd, said that he will miss the team. During the practices he has said hurtful words to them, but Bernardo explained that it was only part of the process to discipline and motivate them.
“The keys for our team’s success are discipline, attitude, skills, and motivation,” Bernardo said.
CBA BizAd also won as Most Disciplined Team.
The first runner-up of the competition was the College of Engineering and Design (CED) Builders while the College of Computer Studies (CCS) Sirens was second runner-up.
Zandrea Bollo from CBA was declared as the competition’s best flyer. The CED Builders, last year’s champion, won the Best in Costume award.
Asst. Prof. Gloria Futalan, acting Dean of CBA, said that CBA possessed the 3 keys of success: commitment, dedication, and discipline.
“We go for the best and excellent participation. The CBA council did a good job,” Futalan said.
Other participating teams were from the Institute of Clinical and Laboratory Sciences (ICLS) and the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS).
The 2014 World Cheerleading Championship winner, Team Pilipinas Cheerleading Squad, performed in the said event.
Among the judges were head coaches from pep squads in Metro Manila and veterans of national cheerleading competitions.
